CureSearch Walk Forever Heroes – Eloise Dodge Gould

This past May 1st marked the ten year anniversary of Eloise’s death. It has been a decade of making adjustments in our personal lives yet we remain hopeful and forever grateful.  My family has dedicated our best efforts in assisting Curesearch in any way that we can.

CureSearch Walk Heroes – Alex – The A Team

September 4, 2020

Alex was just a happy, normal kindergartner when he was diagnosed basically out of the blue in February of 2012 after off and on back pain.  He was diagnosed with ALL -acute lymphoblastic leukemia t-cell high risk. He started chemo the next day after getting the diagnosis. He endured 8 months of weekly, intense chemo […]

CureSearch Walk Forever Heroes – Steven

September 4, 2020

Our son Steven was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia  when he was 8 years old.  Our healthy, athletic second child of four children felt ill at a local summer day camp.   We took him to the doctor thinking he may have strep throat but when the doctor saw red dots on his chest they […]

CureSearch Walk Heroes – Rachel

September 3, 2020

“Our Girl Rachel” On Friday, February 26, 2000, we heard the scariest words no parent should ever have to hear… “Your child has cancer… her chance of survival is about 10%” Rachel was only 14 months old when she was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. The softball size tumor was in her abdomen and attached to her […]

CureSearch Walk Heroes – Krislynn

September 3, 2020

Our daughter Krislynn was diagnosed with Stage 4 Wilms tumor (Kidney cancer) which spread to her liver, lungs, abdominal nodules, and enlarged lymph nodes on 10/15/2016. Her treatment was brutal. Her next biggest hurdle is puberty. That’s when we will know (hopefully) if she will need a kidney transplant sooner (teenager) rather then later in […]

CureSearch Walk Heroes -Caleb Gibson

September 2, 2020

It’s been 5 years since our family stepped into the childhood cancer world… also what we call “the club” we never chose to join. Many thoughts went through my head. I couldn’t imagine what a 3 year old could possibly be thinking being stuck in the hospital against their will. I thought to myself “He […]

CureSearch Walk Forever Heroes – Anna’s Army

September 1, 2020

In the spring of 2009, Anna Rogotzke was a happy and seemingly-healthy two-year-old who loved to sing and dance and play with her two big brothers.  She loved Dora the Explorer, Disney princesses – especially Cinderella – giraffes, and anything pink, purple, and sparkly.    Three months after her second birthday, a tummy ache eventually led […]

CureSearch Walk Heroes – Chloe

Chloe Gochenour is 11 years old and lives with her family in Luray, Va. At the age of just 5 years old, Chloe was diagnosed with Leukemia. After 2.5 years of treatment, we are thankful that Chloe is a very active, healthy young lady. Chloe loves swimming, gymnastics, basketball, riding her bike, and checking on […]

CureSearch Walk Forever Heroes – Meredith

August 26, 2020

Our daughter, Meredith, was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma almost five years ago in late September, 2015. Before her diagnosis, we knew almost nothing about pediatric cancer and we knew even less about how it would change our family’s life forever. Pediatric cancer steals almost everything about a normal childhood. In the case of our young daughter, […]
